About Steve Lukather
The American singer, songwriter, record producer and guitar equilibrist Steve Lukather began his musical journey in 1976, at the age of nineteen, when he teamed up with his fellow musicians from the now legendary rock band Toto.
Lukather remained a part of Toto until the band split up in 2008 and also joined their reunion tour, when the band reformed in 2010.
Ever since his first solo record 'Lukather' (1989), he has ventured into the various realms of progressive rock, hard rock and jazz fusion and collaborated with a vast number of notable musicians such as Eddie Van Halen, jazz guitarist Larry Carlton, Richard Marx, Jan Hammer, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and Steven Stevens. As of December 2011 Lukather began working on what will be his seventh solo album, scheduled to be released in 2013.
Inspired by guitar world Hall of Famers such as Jimi Hendrix and Jimi Page, Lukather is well-known for his ravenous and powerful playing style. This enormous musical talent combined with an incredible efficiency in the studio has earned this virtuous a total of five Grammy awards from a total of twelve Grammy nominations.
When it comes to engineering his personal sound, Lukather likes to keep it plain and simple - either it works or it doesn't. Although testing in studios offers a variety of technical tools to enhance and perfect your sound and style, Lukather praises the magic of the dynamics of performing live on the stage. He emphasizes these elements as a key factor of producing the perfect sound quality.
Lukather embraces the performance and high quality of TC products in general, and expresses that TC will always have a very special place in his personal setup.
